I love these recipes using a crock pot…basically I can dump everything in the pot and come home to an easy and amazing dinner. This recipe for spicy chicken in the crock-pot is so delicious and diversified as you can make the chicken and eat it in tacos, on a salad (like my photo), as nachos or even just on its own.
For my salad I used my homemade black beans but you can use canned beans to make it easier.
Modifications for this recipe? Sure why not…
- Instead of using salsa verde you can use a pico or red salsa
- You can omit the canned diced green chiles if you don’t want to add extra heat
- If you want to add extra heat, you can add canned jalapenos and I would omit the canned green chilies
- You can throw in 1 chipotle pepper (not the whole can, just 1) to add a smokey flavor to the original recipe
I put my chicken in my crock pot (sorry for the blurred photo)
added a can of diced green chilies
covered it with my salsa verde, usually I use a different brand, I like Herdez better than the one I used
I let it all cook for about 5 hours on low, I removed the chicken
shredded the chicken and placed it back in the salsa
then I used the chicken on top of my salad,
I made some nachos for my daughter using the same chicken
So here is a great easy spicy chicken made in the crockpot and is versified so even the picky eaters will love it! For the salad, I only drizzled a little olive oil on top as it didn’t need any other dressing, if you feel like you want a little splash of dressing you can add some fresh lime juice or lemon juice if you have some. For the nachos I used the same homemade beans, the chicken and a little cheese.
